I am not a lawyer either, but it looks as though the key principle is
fair use. Fair use means - in our case - that when we say 'matlab' -
we mean the Matlab program written by the Mathworks. If that's
obvious from the context, I don't think we need the TM, and if it
isn't, I don't think the TM helps much (whose TM?). I might be wrong
