Securus Technologies Defending Their Honor

The technology industry is filled with patents. The industry can be highly competitive when it comes to who can use the patents and how they can use them. This is true for Securus Technologies and their competitor, Global Tel Link. Recently, GTL released a press statement making many claims about patents and Securus Technologies. Not agreeing with many of the statements by GTL, Securus Technologies released a rebuttal to some of those statements a few days later.

 

Many of the claims that GTL was making had to do with patents and if Securus was allowed to use them or not. Both GTL and Securus Technologies have been to court many times to settle these disputes. GTL says that a final decision has been made. Securus Technologies says no such decision has been made and they currently have the right to use the patents in question. Securus Technologies also stated that there is more to come with what is happening with the court cases and it will be awhile before anything is settled.

 

Another large claim made by GTL was that Securus Technologies is too willing to take any competitor to court. Securus does acknowledge that they have been to court many times, but heading to court is never their first resort. They always try to settle things civilly and get it handled out of court between them and any competitor. If a suitable resolution for both companies cannot be made, then the court option is brought up.

 

Securus Technologies is a technology firm based in Dallas, Texas. They are a leader in providing technology for law enforcement and the criminal justice system. They serve over 3,400 agencies across North America. Patent disputes are part of the process and they will defend themselves when they feel it is necessary.
