Securus Technologies is among the companies that lead in the provision of technological solutions for public safety, corrections, investigation, and monitoring. Securus Technologies released several correction statements to various press releases that were made public by Global Tel Link. Securus Technologies terms the publication of the Global Tel Link’s as inaccurate and misleading. Securus Technologies’ press release aims at providing clarification and correcting information on several Global Tel Link’s claims.
The GTL stated that the decision made by the United States Patent Trial and Appeals Board on GTL’s US patent No. 7,256, 816 gives permission GTL to go ahead with a fourth validated patent to pursue injunctions and damages against Securus in awaiting violation lawsuits in Texas federal court. On the other hand, Securus corrects this claim made by GTL by stating that GTL will not be in a position to pursue claims that they have stated because of the case in Texas in currently stayed, instead they will now move ahead to the District court. In regards to the 816 patent as well as the other patent Securus is moving for the hearing, patent No. 816 has neither been accepted nor GTL is in a position to seek damages or injunction that it has claimed.
Consequently GTL made claims that the PTAB approved all 55 claims of the 816 patent that seeks to protect the GTL video visitation monitoring technology a crucial security characteristic that gives corrections employees to monitor video visitation between the inmates and their friends and family members and a technology that is required in all U.S. jails and prisons that make use of the video visitation technology. These claims made by GTL are totally inaccurate, this is because GTL is only asserting a single independent claim and a bigger number of dependent 816 patent’s claims in its lawsuit with Securus. Securus Technologies is assertive on the fact that it doesn’t apply claimed fundamental security feature revealed by that one independent claim.
