Securus Technologies is a technology firm that is based in Dallas, Texas. The firm has been in business for three decades and creates technology for law enforcement and corrections facilities all across North America. Recently, a competitor to Securus Technologies put out a press release making many claims against the technology company. Global Tel Link, or GTL, has been a strong competitor to Securus Technologies and they currently have many ongoing disputes they are involved in.
Two days after the press release from GTL, Secures Technologies responded to the claims with their own press release. Securus Technologies took issue with six issues and stated their position on each. Many of the claims made by GTL had to do with patents and who has access to them. Patents are a vital part of the technology industry and many disputes come up over who can and can not use them.
GTL stated that there are disputed issues that are not patentable and that there are items that Securus Technologies cannot use due to who holds the patent.
Patent disputes do come up in the technology industry. Securus Technologies and GTL have many issues they are currently working on. Many of these have been taken to a court of law to get a final say on them. These lawsuits can take many months to resolve and only time will tell how all of this will play out once a final decision is reached.
