Demanding revoke correction

Suppose your trump suit is A-K-Q-J-5-4 opposite 3-2.

Both opponents follow when you cash A-K, and both show out on the queen. Obviously somebody revoked.

You next lead the jack and both show out again. Question: Is it proper now to demand whoever has the remaining trump to find it and play it?

When this happened at a recent club game, I did nothing and was surprised to learn (by the new Laws) the revoke was a freebie, i.e., it cost one trick but the defender scored an undeserved trump trick in exchange. Had I demanded correction on the jack, I would have gained a trick, but this has the aura of exploiting the Laws.
