In mid last year, Securus filed for new patent violation lawsuit against the Global Tel Link (GTL). After the lawsuit, the two companies have been going back and forth on the lawsuits. Now, during this period the GTL had released press releases. Some of the press releases were misleading, and the Securus Company has set the record straight.
I have been following the story, and this is what I have gathered. In response to the press release that was published on June 7th, 2016, GTL claimed that the court had permitted the company to seek injunctions over the damages that Securus Technologies had caused. However what happened was, according to the court GTL couldn’t seek any injunctions.
This claim could not be further from the truth. Securus is a company of integrity, and they have made steps to reach an agreement with all the companies that have used their patent technology without the license to do so. Even though there has been more than one incident, the company has in all cases found a middle ground and entered into a responsible agreement with the company. Keep in mind that GTL was one of those companies that had multiple agreements with Securus.
In my opinion, GTL is wasting money and time-fighting patent lawsuits that they clearly can’t win. They should have entered into another license agreement with the company.
