Actually, it looked to me like they all but cut him off.
I agree that Our Editor asked just about the only useful and interesting question (the other candidate being the questions about GPLv3, which Novell sidestepped by saying they haven't seen it--which is a very legitimate response of course... but still a sidestep). I also agree that they didn't really address it head-on. Although Nat tried to draw a parallel, I think there's a big difference between the generic patent indemnification offered by some companies, and this very specific payment of money to another company to cover patent use by your customers.
