Securus Technologies has released a press release in response to what it claims are false allegations directed against the company. The press release repudiates some of the claims issued by fellow competitor GTL in the law enforcement and prison management technology sector. Here are some of the claims that Securus Technologies has corrected from GTL’s allegations.
GTL, or Global Tel Link has claimed that they are moving forward with an injunction against Securus Technologies. They also claim that they seek damages for a PTAB validated patent. Unfortunately, for GTL the case has been stayed in Federal Court. This means that the company cannot seek any damages from Securus Technologies. AS for patent #816, it has not been validated yet. Securus will be seeking a rehearing on this patent, thus nullifying the claim that GTL can have injunctions or seek damages against Securus Technologies.
Another claim of Global Tel Link is that the courts have upheld 55 claims from the 816 patent. The company further claims that this includes the video visitation monitoring systems that allow prison personnel to monitor inmates and visitors. The correction by Securus Technologies is that the courts have actually not reviewed any of the claims made by GTL. There is only independent claim against Securus Technologies by GTL. That independent claim does not apply to Securus Technologies or any of its practices or technology in use. Thus the entire statement of Global Tel Link here is essentially false and misleading.
This is just a small sample of false and misleading statements released by GTL as it is losing in court to Securus Technologies in matters of patent infringement. Securus Technologies will continue to correct the false press releases with its own correct press releases. Securus Technologies is the leading criminal justice and law enforcement monitoring technology company in the country. This is proven by the greater amount of patents and license dollars collected over the course of many, many years when compared to GTL.
