As it uses @, it needs to be inside an \makeatletter ... \makeatother  
thing.  That is, your preable should have

	\thm at notefont{\bfseries\upshape}

Without this, LaTeX reads \thm, then @, and doesn't know what \thm  
is;  on the other hand, \makeatletter makes @ be read as a letter,  
and LaTeX will read the whole command \thm at notefont;  the subsequent  
\makeatother restores @ to non-letter.

The character @ is understood as a letter inside all .sty and .cls  
files, but not in the .tex file.  This is so that all sorts of  
internal commands that use @ in their name would not be accidentally  
redefined by a hapless user.  It's part of LaTeX's ideology of  
protecting users from themselves.
