People patent things all the time which never see real life use.

Also, licenses are almost always listed as being for personal, non-commercial use. If you are selling tickets, using it for advertising, running a bar/ club or other commercial venue, etc.. you are in violation. I've never seen a product licensed based on some arbitrarily small the number of people watching. It's insane to think companies will start changing licensing based on the presence or absence of a Kinect in someone's house.

It's one of those things that looks scary on the surface but even if it's put into use will have no effect.
