On June 9, 2016, Securus Technologies released a Press release to clear up the confusion and misconception it creates due to some unlawful statements from Global Tel Link (GTL).
You might be aware of that Securus Technology is a multi-disciplinary technology firm that has been working to secure our penetration sector and other sophisticated agencies. Their categorized services also include incident management, emergency response, inmate self-service, investigation, communication, biometric analysis, public information and information management. Securus is expanding rapidly and recently are acquired JPay Inc.
The press release is a protest of GTL’s recently published press release where they unlawfully claim a lot of things those are either in the process of trial or not fully settled.
In the Pre-released issue by GTL, it clearly states that they are trying to push the things a bit harder and try to influence their clients that their claims are right and to the point. But, Securus has come up with reliable, transparent and logical answers to their demands and clear Securus’s stand.
GTL already argued that they got permission to claim 7,256,816 as their own and can seek injunctions and damages against Securus whereas the case stays in the Texas court. Securus is going for a rehearing on this permission of patent, and until it settled by count, neither party can declare it as themselves. They also stated few other claims and Securus corrected them as well.
Compared to GTL, Securus has more patents. All of their License trails went in their favor, and they collected around $60 million by claiming Patent. On the other land, GTL never won any trial.
In his statement, Richard A. Smith, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Securus Technology stated that GTL should be aware of that these trials take several years to solve and costs millions of dollars. Rather than spending this money on this trial which based on a few weak logics, they should spend their money wisely to expand their business.
