The Court Will Decide
January 24, 2017
Patents make up a huge part of the technology industry. Because there are so many patents and many companies who want access to these patents, disputes can occur. Securus Technologies is a Dallas-based technology firm. They create technology and systems that are used by corrections facilities and law enforcement agencies across North America.
Recently, a competitor of Securus Technologies, Global Tel Link, put out a press release making many claims against the technology firm. Many of the claims had to do with patents that both companies are familiar with. Two days after the GTL press release, Securus Technologies put out a press release of their own to get their side of the story out there.
Securus Technologies stated that these issues are currently being disputed in a court of law, and no decision has been made yet. Because of this, Securus Technologies will continue working as they currently are until a final court decision has been made.
GTL also claimed that Securus Technologies is very quick to sue and brings many lawsuits when they are not necessary. Securus Technologies strongly condemns this claim and states that a lawsuit is always a last resort. Taking an issue to court is time-consuming and expensive and Secures Technologies tries to avoid this route if at all possible.
Securus Technologies felt it necessary to respond and state their side of the story. Their issues are currently tied up in the court system, and only time will tell how this will all play out for both companies.
