Securus pinpoints GTL’s inaccuracies in its press release

Following a press release issued by Global Tel Link (GTL) on June 7, 2016, Securus Technologies, a leading provider of innovative civil and criminal justice integrated technology solutions, has come out strongly to refute what it terms as GTL’s erroneous claims and set the record straight through the following press release.


GTL assertion 1: According to GTL, the US Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB) has validated its patent No. 7,256,816. Based on the PTAB ruling, GTL seeks damages as well as an injunction against Securus Technologies in Texas federal court.


Securus clarification 1: Because the court has stopped further legal process on the case, GTL has no right to seek neither damages nor an injunction against Securus. What’s more, Securus is seeking a rehearing of the allegedly ‘PTAB-validated ‘816 patent’.


GTL assertion 2: PTAB upheld all 55 claims related to the ‘816 patent, which copyrights GTL’s video visitation technology that allows law enforcement to observe video visitations.


Securus clarification 2: Securus does not use GTL’s ‘816 patent on its video visitation platforms.


GTL assertion 3: PTAB ruled that GTL’s innovations are patentable, which allows GTL to copyright its innovations.


Securus clarification 3: Contrary to GTL’s assertions, the PTAB only maintained their unwillingness to review the claims, and in that regard, Securus has filed a petition for rehearing.


GTL assertion 4: According to GTL’s CEO, the company will move to court within a few months to provide evidence on how Securus infringes the PTAB-Validated ‘816 patent.


Securus clarification: It is highly likely that the case will be heard in court in a few months or even this year.


GTL allegation 5: If the court grants GTL damages and an injunction, Securus will be forced to stop incorporating GTL’s patented innovations in its video visitation technology


Securus clarification 5: Because Securus is not using any of GTL’s patented innovations; therefore, an injunction is highly unlikely.


GTL assertion 6: According to Oliver, Securus has established a reputation of bullying industry competitors through lawsuits, threats, and vague accusations. GTL seeks to end this bullying cycle by defending its technologies in court.


Securus Clarification 6: Securus has over the years reached amicable license agreements with industry counterparts and in particular GTL.


Rather than agreeing to a license agreement on patents, GTL has chosen to wage war over patents with Securus despite the fact that Securus boasts of twice as many patents and favorable patent metrics compared to GTL.


With their headquarters in Dallas, Texas, Securus Technologies serves over 3,450 correctional facilities and over 1.2 million convicts in North America with its wide range of innovative technological solutions.


Securus Gives Louisiana State Prison Inmates a Reason to Smile In the Face of Adversity

No one really knows when a disaster will strike. When it does, however, it comes with so much anxiety and fear for our loved ones. At such times, communication takes prominence over most other necessities.


I give Securus Technologies a thumbs-up for yet again putting the interests of incarcerated people and their loved ones before everything else. Although unfortunate, the recent floods in Louisiana State have shown all of us who the real friends of inmates are. Thanks to the leader in provision of technological solutions to the justice and correction service, people who have their friends or relatives incarcerated at Louisiana State Prison can keep in touch with them – all for free.


Keeping In Touch Everyday


Every inmate will get a chance to talk with loved ones, every day for a week since the first day of September 2016. Therefore, they will get a chance to catch up and know how everyone is fairing on both sides of the line and remove any anxiety and stress. This proves Securus’ dedication in ensuring comfort and peace of mind for inmates and their kin through one of the most effective means—communication.


Further Assistance


The communication technologies company will be spending over $300,000 in connecting the free calls. As if that’s enough, the Louisiana Department of Corrections will receive another $50,000 which will be channeled into the inmates welfare funds. If that is not proof enough for selfless service, then I am not sure what is.


Securus is not new to helping incarcerated people escape their plight. Since it was founded in 1986, the Dallas-based company has provided communications solutions services to more than 2,600 correction centers throughout the United States. It also has investment in communication technologies, acquisitions, and patents worth over $600 million.
