Securus Technologies Is Not Letting GTL Get Away With Misleading Statements
January 19, 2017 — 9:42

As Global Tel Link (GTL)issues inaccurate press releases, Securus Technologies is determined not to sit back and not dispute them. Both companies provide inmate communication services and other criminal justice technology, however, GTL claims that Securus is using their patented technology without their permission. Securus flatly denies these claims, saying that GTL is misrepresenting what the Patent Board has ruled. For example, GTL claims that Securus is using their video visitation monitoring technology, while Securus insists that they are not using the one patented GTL security feature in the video visitation technology that they furnish to corrections facilities.

I cannot fathom GTL’s statements, nor why they feel it necessary to publish press releases that are purposefully misleading. In fact, Securus has more in-force patents and more pending patents than GTL, so it is not clear why GTL would believe Securus would need to infringe on their patents.

When families put money in an account for their loved one to call them from a corrections facility, they cannot choose which inmate telecommunications provider to use, therefore, GTL appears to be wasting their time trying to gain a competitive advantage with inaccurate press releases.

    After all, Securus Technologies has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and the company holds nearly three times as many patents as GTL. I also do not know that rushessay review would want anything to happen to them all at once.
