You can prohibit the use of geographical indication by third party whose product does not conform to the applicable standards of protected geographical indication. Basicaly the rightful producers of original product protected by geographical indication can exclude other parties from using the sign if they do not meet certain standards. These standards can be planting practice, gathering practice, quality level etc.

In most countries there is no set time period of protection, so the protection can last for indefinite period of time as long as the geographical indication is registered.

Main difference is that while trademark owner can exclude third parties from using his trademarked sign in business even if this third party creates the exactly same product, the producers of product protected by geographical indication can not prevent someone from making and selling a product using same standards as they do. So if the third party meets the criteria set for usage (such as quality and features of the product) of geographical indication, it can rightfuly use the geographical indication sign on their product.

You also can not transfer your right to use geographical indication of product or licence it.
