Even if qualified as a neologism at the time it was first used, it had by the relevant data fallen into use as the name of a new science.
-Aromacology (Trade Mark:Invalidity) [2005] UKIntelP o22905


Benelux Trade Mark Office relied in the main proceedings on the exclusively descriptive nature of the neologism biomild, which conveys solely that the products (in question) are biological and mild, and concluded from that that BIOMILD did not possess distinctive character. (...) A mark is not the same thing as the elements of which it is composed, since it is always more than the sum of its parts and thus enjoys an existence independent of them. It is only when the combination of the characteristics of the goods or services cannot be designated other than by the neologism that it must be concluded that the latter will be perceived as descriptive of the goods or services and that its registration must be refused. (T)he fact that a mark is a neologism is not sufficient to ensure that it enables goods or services to be distinguished. (...) If the neologism is composed of elements each of which is itself devoid of any distinctive character in relation to the goods concerned, the combination of those elements satisfies the requirement for distinctive character only in so far as it is itself distinctive. (...) If a mark, such as that at issue in the main proceedings, which consists of a neologism produced by a combination of elements, is to be regarded as descriptive (...), it is not sufficient that each of its components may be found to be descriptive. The word itself must be found to be so.

Neologisms are a natural process, even though it takes time for them to be formally accepted by scholars.
