Securus Technologies May Be Entitle To Three Times The Damages For GTL Patent Infringements

Thanks to putting more than $670 million back into the business, Dallas-based Securus Technology is now considered the top company in the corrections industry. Securus is responsible for serving more than 3,000 correctional institutions at the state, county and local levels across the United States. Millions of inmates rely on the emergency responses, inmate communication system, information management, public information and incident management that Securus provides. Securus tries to keep the integrity bar high in the corrections industry, but not all companies play by the same set of rules.

Allegations of telephone misconduct have been reported by the Louisiana Public Service Commission, and those allegations involve Global Tel Link. In a recent Order, the Louisiana Public Service Commission, claims that Global Tel Link has been shaving minutes off telephone conversations and adding fees to the end of inmate telephone calls. Securus Technology Chief Executive Officer, Rick Smith, said his company is investigating those allegations, and the results will be published in several press releases. Global Tel Link thinks Securus Technologies is not in a position to perform that service because GTL has more quality patents than Securus and GTL has spent more money on research and development to improve communications between inmates and the outside world.

Mr. Smith has asked an independent judge to review the patent portfolios of both companies and make a ruling on the quality, quantity and value of each patent portfolio. Smith believes the executives of Global Tel Link will not agree to a review because they know they will lose. In the meantime, Securus is weighing the possibilities of getting three times the amount of damages they deserve for GTL patent infringements over the last three years.

Bob Reina’s idea for changing the world of advertising is in full effect

TalkFusion is a company that has taken video advertising to an entirely new level. A lot of businesses are actually losing their customers because they don’t engage with the new technology that the world is adopting. Without being able to effectively reach people easily, they just simply cannot thrive, and end up closing their doors for good. It may not be because it’s too expensive, (although that is a genuine concern), but more-so that people don’t really know where they turn. When they have been a part of an industry for so many years and suddenly been forced to change, how can they know that they are doing it properly?

Know more:

Bob Reina, (TalkFusion’s CEO and Co-Founder), had the bold vision of packaging the world of communication and advertising together, in order to make it easier for everyone. Not only did they make it easy to reach new customers, but they also put a system in place that would keep organizing and informing the userbase you already have an easier task. So, essentially, TalkFusion is a network of people that are all using its features to progress in their own avenue. That’s not even to mention all of the financial advantages attached just for simply distributing the same system to other people in the same situation. That is most literally combining one of the largest industries in the world with a tool that almost EVERY industry in the world could use. It’s no wonder that the company has done so well so far, and has a great foreseeable future as one of the most multi-fauceted marketing companies of all time.


FreedomPop Gradually Taking the World by Storm by Offering Even More Free Services

FreedomPop is a MVN0 which offers calling services and basic texting for absolutely nothing and disperses SIM cards. They’ve lately revealed their non-diabolical master plot to help them progress in the creation of their place among top cellular telephone service providers: offering zero-rated complete access WhatsApp, their affiliated mobile app. Because of this brilliant business plan, their messaging program will cost nothing whatsoever, irrespective of whether a user has a ton of data available, very little data, or even no (that’s right, NO DATA; yes, that’s a thing to some poorer people) data allowance on their mobile plan. Ever so sadly, this new concept won’t be seen in the good ‘ol U S of A anytime soon, as it’s first trial launch will only be offered in the semi-Mexican country of Spain for awhile.

FreedomPop was valiantly fought for and founded out of the grand city of Los Angeles half a decade ago in 2011 and has built it’s reputation on offering free minutes, text messages and even data to individuals who can’t manage to buy more than a basic plan. How unfortunate, right? Within the United States, the company continues to be running for the most part. When the program was launched in the UK, FreedomPop did most definitely (I assure you) start worldwide for the very first and very last instance back in the Autumn of 2015. Since the declaration to continue international business in European Mexico (Spain), it’s rise in the mobile service industry has given indicators concerning how they may plan to take on business on a global scale.

Similar services have been offered by other businesses in select segments of our home planet, Earth, but the practice, much like prostitution, was unacceptable in some foreign markets. Due to some law in India, the free technologically primitive (but still “basic”, to be politically correct in respect to poor people) services offered by Facebook were prohibited. The Facebook-owned app, WHatsApp, owned service was banned too. In the EU, however, the free services haven’t been banned outright but are being left to the discretion of it’s member nations.
