The world of business is shady and often times dark. Individuals who are not accustomed to their workings can sometimes be swept away just as quickly as they appear. This is transferable to companies who are not careful with every aspect of their business model, and this includes patents on researched products. Securus Technologies is an information technology corporation that has recently been under fire for this exact issue; being accused of running on expired patents from one of its competitors, GTL. These accusations claim that Securus has been operating under a large amount of expired patent codes, meaning that in order to correctly follow procedure they would need to release their products to the outside marketplace for free and ready distribution through other companies.
Not willing to accept these claims Securus requested the aid of outside third party experts who performed valuable research into the accusations and concluded that not only does Securus Technologies still maintain valid patent codes but that they will continue to for an extended period of time. This is great news for Securus Technologies who will still be able to maintain control of their high quality products, being able to continue to provide incredible service and technology solutions to their clientele.
The reason that this revelation is important is that Securus is a mainstay for inmates residing in the United States prison system. These individuals are normally considered undesirable from other companies and rarely receive much support, is any. The ability to maintain control of their unique products means that Securus can continue to do business as normal and progressively move forward with their customer service, which is exemplary and unheard of within the current system. Securus is a humanitarian firm as well as a technology business, and this is a powerful fact to note.
