Securus Technology strives to supply affordable, dependable methods of communication for incarcerated individuals and their families. Global Tel Link, a competitor of Securus, is attempting to stop Securus from providing inmates with the communication services that they have been offering. By stating that they are seeking to file injunctions against Securus, GTL is spreading false claims that would present Securus in a negative light. Securus published an article in which they correct and clarify some of the inaccurate statements made by GTL.
GTL’s accusations are entirely dependent upon their claims being preserved by PTAB. Since PTAB hasn’t reviewed any of their claims, the statements that GTL is making against Securus are unsubstantiated and don’t have any merit.
GTL states that PTAB has preserved all 55 claims of their patent feature which enables corrections staff to monitor visitations when in fact, PTAB hasn’t even reviewed these claims. Securus maintains that even if PTAB were to review these claims, that it does not use the fundamental security feature that GTL is claiming as an infringement. GTL also tries to paint Securus as a bully amongst industry competitors when in fact, Securus has reached many intelligent and mutually beneficial arrangements with companies that also use their patented technology.
