Therefore, when GTL released a press full of mistakes and discrepancies, Securus moved swiftly to paint the real picture to the corrections world by rectifying the inaccuracies.
Securus confirmed that it is moving for rehearing on U.S. patent no. 7,256,816 contrary to the GTL’s statements that the United States Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) had validated its claims. Securus also confirmed that the rehearing dates are yet to be announced. The firm also stated that it is not using GTL’s patented technologies in any of its video visitation platforms. Thus, GTL has no evidence or basis to file an infringement lawsuit against Securus.
Securus Technologies has built strong connections and partnerships with other major players in the corrections sector to improve the quality of solutions it delivers to its clients.

However, Out of greed, GTL has been making several trips to courts and spending millions of dollars to engage in legal tussles with Securus over patents instead of renewing license agreements.
