Securus Technologies is a correction company based in Dallas, Texas. The firm offers biometric analysis, inmate monitoring, and public information services to correction facilities. Most of the company’s services are geared to improving safety in prisons. The agency provides safety equipment and law enforcement policies. Securus biggest competitor is GTL. I found that the two companies disagreed on patent issues. GTL made a public press release insisting that Securus had infringed its patent. Following the argument, I found that Securus Technologies did not break any patents. I discovered that GTL is a company that wants to win the competition unfairly.
GTL released a press statement in June 2016 stating that Securus had infringed its rights. Securus came out clear a few days later to insist that the information provided by GTL was misleading and inaccurate. GTL had opted out to use its resources to fight Securus for unknown reasons. Securus Technologies came out to clarify the corrections made by the incorrect claims. Securus showed that it had not infringed any rights owned by GTL.
GTL had made an inaccurate claim when they stated that the innovations made by the company were patentable by the PTBA. It went ahead to state that Securus had used the innovations and thus infringed its patent rights. Securus Technologies came out indicating that the PTAB can not determine these patents. The patents are only approved or denied in a court of law. The company went to indicate further that Securus had used no innovations as put down by GTL. GTL has current plans to move to court. However, one can be assured that no jury is going to listen to claims made by GTL. The company has no evidence to support its claims. Securus CEO has been willing to take on a challenge with GTL.
