Apple iTunes Concert Ticket+ Patent

Getting promotional items from QR barcodes or SMS messages isn’t a new concept, but Apple is looking to take it one step further with its iTunes Concert Ticket+ patent. In this patent, tickets to the concert you desire can be sold through iTunes, and the ticket stored on your iPhone, ready to be presented when entering the venue. To make your life easier, Maps, venue information and all the other mumbo jumbo will be included in the app. If such a patent were to be turned into a real product, would Apple begin sell all kinds of tickets, and take a slice of profit from each sale?
