Securus Technologies corrects inaccurate allegations made by GTL
Securus Technologies is a leading company that provides criminal justice in correction facilities. The Texas-based company recently released statements that corrected misleading and inaccurate statements made by GTL. From allegations made by Global Tel Link, I find GTL as a highly dishonest company. The company went ahead to release misleading information just to get ahead of its competitors. Fortunately, Securus Technologies came out clearly to address the inaccurate claims contained in GTL’s press release.
The sixth allegation made by GTL against Securus stated that Securus had established a pattern of settling and suing industry competitors. The company has set up legal claims that are favorable to them. According to GTL, these actions have halted them from defending their technology. GTL went ahead to argue that Securus Technologies bullied their business but will not prevent them from going to courts. Securus refuted these claims stating that the company has always acted in the best interest of its competitors too. The company has always made decisions that are acceptable for enterprises that use patented technology.
In all undertakings by Securus, the company has achieved reasonable licenses with other businesses. Securus has entered into license agreements with GTL on previous occasions. For whatever reason, I do not know why GTL has sought to spend millions to engage in fights over patents. The company should strive to enter into other licenses and gain new patents. As popularly known, GTL is under the table when it comes to patents. Securus has more than twice the number of patents compared to GTL. Securus Technologies has portrayed on several occasions that their services are more favorable than that of GTL.
According to the CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, GTL doesn’t want to pursue its licenses and patents. Instead, the company seeks to spend money and time to destroy its competitors.
