I know, I'm following this since quite a while ...

About LinkedTV? Simply annotating TV programs at a very fine grained 
level, using media fragments URI to address regions of images and video 
sequences. Annotations are obtained automatically from a a broad range 
of multimedia analysis techniques, or NLP processing (mainly NER) on 
video transcripts. We will have many more concrete demos online, but 
only from next month.

Yes, in the sense some annotations are plain text, and some are structured

What do you mean exactly? If we reify and further characterize the 
annotation relationship?

> Do you support multiple bodies?

The body could be a literal (typically a keyword spotted in some text) 
or a resource (a URI disambiguating a named entity) or a more complex 
RDF graph.

> Do you need to annotate annotations?

We already attach provenance information using PROV to the annotations 
we generate.

> Are you already - or planning to - sharing the annotations?

All our annotations are dereferencable URIs, and yes, everything will be 
available to 3rd party soon.
Best regards.
