For consumers, the geographical indications are useful to identify the origins and the quality of the products. Many of these products acquired a genuine awareness which, without an adequate protection, could induce false declarations from dishonest commercial operators.

The legit producers are also harmed because they lose the benefit of commercial operations and the reputation of the product is affected.
