With the fast growth of multimedia sharing and annotating applications on the Web, there is an increasing research interests in semantic annotations of multimedia. However, applying linked data principles in multimedia annotations is a relatively new topic, especially when annotations are related to media fragments. This paper, therefore, discusses this problem and further breaks it down into three fundamental sub-questions: 1) choosing media fragment URIs 2) Dereferencing media fragment URIs 3) Ontology alignment related to media fragments and annotations. This paper briefly describes how the interlinking multimedia annotations could be used in the future and concludes with a call for future research to deeply investigate the three research questions. There is a need to develop some working model to address the problems of publishing multimedia resources on the Web as linked data.
