Securus Technologies of Dallas, TX has been a revolutionary trendsetter thanks to the amazing services and programs the company delivers to the correctional industry. The recent buzz over the company’s valued video visitation service has further allowed Securus Technologies to expand its brand in the industry. Securus has gained additional notoriety via a public relations campaign undertaken to address inaccuracies put forth by a Global Tel Link (GTL) press release.
Issues between Securus Technologies and Global Tel Link are connected to litigation surrounding patent claims. GTL’s statements about injunctions, damages, and issues surrounding licenses. Concerns over patented technologies associated with video visitation have been raised in Securus Technologies’ press release. Securus notes the company does not use any patented technologies derived from GTL’s video visitation system.
An interesting statistic about both companies’ litigation history is pointed out in the press release. Securus has won 19 infringement cases and lost zero. GTL has won zero and lost two. This particular statistic may raise eyebrows among those who have limited knowledge about the past history of both companies’ litigation.
Rick Smith, the CEO of Securus Technologies, is very quick to point out that his company is known for its incredibly superior technology and will publicly counter any GTL claims deemed inaccurate.
