Random Forests and Such

I have found that Leo Breiman’s page on Random Forests(tm) is highly useful.

I also noticed they trademarked RF(tm), RandomForests(tm), RandomForest(tm) and Random Forest(tm).  I think it’s pretty impressive you can trademark just RF(tm).  Now if people use these methods, and don’t cite them, can they sue them for trademark infringement, and force a citation?

Machine learners beware?
