"Joule Thief" seems to be a registered trademark.

The Joule Thief circuit is on Wikipedia listed as open source hardware http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Open_source_hardware

The document you linked has "Joule-Thief tm" which means they want to lay claim to "Joule-Thief" not "Joule Thief"

And the funny thing is I just did a search on the United States Patent and Trademark Office and could not find the term "Joule-Thief" as a registered trademark, so that means they did not go to the expense of registering their claim.

search for trade marks here:http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=tess&state=4001:cbo422.1.1

Here is the current list of alive and dead registered marks with "Joule" from the USPTO:
