Recently Securus Technologies released an article to correct the supposed inaccuracies of Global Tele Link’s (GTL) series of current press releases. GTL is using these press releases to make accusations against Securus and the recent legal battle GTL is waging against some of Securus’ patent claims.
To counteract these negative press releases, Securus is writing articles highlighting the specific points that GTL has been cited in the press releases with an explanation for each point. The whole legal battle boils down to the belief that Securus has pirated video technology that GTL states is theirs (patent 816, plus a bunch of sub patents) and are waiting patent approval. The United States Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB) as neither approved or denied these patents, the PTAB has just decided not to review any of the patents at this time.
So this begs the question as to how Securus Technologies are in violation of patent fraud when there are no existing patents? Besides Securus is very confident that their Video Visitation technology does not impede on any of the technologies that GTL is trying to patent. Securus’s article is very specific in addressing these supposed violations and I believe that Securus, as a company, would not be so forthcoming if they were at fault for any of the accusations.
In fact the Securus article voiced concern over GTL spending so much of their company’s money on pursuing these patent violation claims. Also included in the article is the status on the number of patents each company holds and those in process. If Securus does not have the patent for a piece of technology, they will seek out the patent owner and offer a partnership for the use of the patent.
Securus Technologies is one of the largest inmate communications companies in the country serving over 3400 facilities and 1,200,000 inmates.
Incarceration can be a difficult time both for inmates and for the families of inmates alike. If you’re like me, you understand the high costs one must pay to talk to loved ones behind bars. Naturally, I looked for the best deal I could find for calling my family behind bars. Looking around I was able to find Securus Technology, a company with a long record of giving ways to talk to loved ones on the outside. Not only are phone calls cheap when you call with Securus, phone calls are actually free.
With its headquarters in Dallas, Securus Technology leads the way in communication for the incarceration. Can’t make it down to the correctional facility holding your family member? You can now use the new video call feature from Securus Technology. Just like Facetime or Skype, you’ll be able to to talk to them face to face as if you were actually there. Thanks to these video visitation systems, I’ve been able to reach out to incarcerated family with no problem. It’s a fast, simple and easy way to reach out to family with no problem. I have nothing but positive things to say about Securus Technology and their free call service.
Securus is an inmate communications company that has been in business for many years. This organization provides video call technology and communications systems for prisons and law enforcement agencies all over the country. Recently, I just found out that this company has been advocating for fair and decent practices within their industry.
I never knew this but when it comes to inmate communications, it is very easy to rip-off prisoners and their families. Yes, it is true that video calls provide a fairly easy way for inmates to call their families; but some companies charge outstanding rates for this service.
The fact is that inmate calls only work because they are important for the prison industry as a whole. I know from personal experience that when inmates stay connected with their loved ones; they often serve out their sentences with the least amount of problems.
Ultimately, the reason why Securus offers inmate calls is to help to reduce the recidivism rate for inmates. The company wants prisoners to stay out of jail once they leave.
Other companies who offer communications systems for prisoners agree with Securus. They make it a point to charge fair and reasonable rates for their service. I am glad to see the industry as a whole come together on this issue. Ultimately, Securus is encouraging various companies to remain ethical for the sake of their industry as a whole; and everyone agrees with what they have to say.
