The Geneva Act creates an international and transparent register of geographical indications (IPI) that allows protection to be obtained in several jurisdictions through a single application to WIPO. (1) [Previous Trademark Rights] The provisions of this Act must not interfere with a previous trademark that has been the subject of an application or registration in good faith or that has been acquired in good faith. If the law of a contracting party provides for a limited derogation from the rights conferred by a trademark, under which such an earlier mark cannot, in certain circumstances, allow the owner to prevent a registered designation of origin or geographical indication from being protected or used in that part, the protection of the registered name of origin or geographical indication limits the rights conferred by that trademark by other means.

The Geneva Act allows the EU to join its member states. However, given the uniform and comprehensive nature of the European system for protecting geographical indications of agricultural products, all GIs or GIs that are submitted by the seven EU Member States for protection under the Lisbon system (currently around 800) and which can be protected under EU law, should no longer be protected by national legislation , but only by EU law. This will also apply to the protection of GIS from Lisbon, from third countries, who are from and whom you are presenting for protection.
