Securus Technologies Stand On the Claims Made By GTL

On July 9, 2016, the Securus Technology came out strongly to respond to the claims that GTL had made two days earlier. The press release aimed at correcting the inaccuracies made by Global Tel Links – one of its closest competitors.


The following issues were brought to the light:


The stayed case in Texas Federal Court limits GTL from seeking any of the reliefs they claimed they would pursue in the District Court. Also, Securus intentions to move for rehearing of the 816 patent means that it has not been validated and as such, GTL cannot seek damages or injunction.

None of the innovations were found to be patentable by PTAB. Rather, they promised to review it.

As far as getting back to court in a few months is concerned, Securus downplayed the possibility of the jury hearing evidence any time soon.

GTL’s efforts to seek injunction and damages requiring Securus to stop using the GTL’s patented video visitation technologies are unfounded. Securus is not using patented technologies of GTL.

Securus dismissed GTL’s claim about its habit of using vague legal claims and accusations to pressure its rivals to settle patent disputes on terms that are only favorable to them.


With its headquarters in Dallas, Securus Technologies serves more than 2600 agencies operating within the public safety, correction agencies and law enforcement sectors. More than one million inmates in the different parts of North America reap substantial benefits from the communication solutions offered by the company.


On May 12, 2016, Securus announced that it had received accreditation from BBB (Better Business Bureau) with an A+ rating.
