Securus Technologies’ response to GTL’s press release
In a press release, Global Tel Link suggests that Securus Technologies engages its competitors in vague accusations. For example, GTL accuses Securus Technologies for accusing them through the media to settle on the agreeable terms. In response, Securus Technologies demonstrated intelligence by developing an amicable solution in settling their grievances with companies that used their technology without proper licensing.
Additionally, Securus Technologies understands that legal litigation would cost them dearly and take much time to complete. In light to this, Securus Technologies questions Global Tel Link’s interest considering that it would adversely affect their company’s finance. The Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies, Richard A. Smith, says that GTL’s approach to the patent case lacks logic. Securus Technologies’ dominance in the extensive patent portfolio was unquestionable; therefore, GTL’s motive remains unknown.
In response to the press release, Richard A. Smith stated that Securus Technologies would continue to defend itself while asserting its patent rights. Smith expressed his willingness to reinstitute his technological challenge with Global Tel Link. GTL’s numerous press releases were geared towards avoiding the challenge by Richard A. Smith, Securus Technologies’ CEO.
