Forums: Index Narutopedia Discussion Naruto Opening Theme Videos

Ok, this is about whether or not we should add videos depicting the Naruto anime openings (and endings if possible.) My general opinion on the matter is that we should have the videos put there for reasons such as these:

  1. Verification of the actual video and/or lyrics 3)
  2. Easy accessible way to retrieve trivia and any notes
  3. And last, but not least... for kicks! We have theme here so we might as well use them. I realize there are probably some issues with them, which is why they haven't been used yet, but I think we can figure out a way to make it work so its compatible with the site's standards.

Just so that everyone coming to the topic get's the full discussion history. Here's my note I gave to AMTNinja about why we don't normally allow these videos on the wiki. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Apr 17, 2009 @ 23:22 (UTC)

AMTNinja, the videos for the openings and closings are actually something that is fairly troublesome. We have never allowed usage like this before. There are a number of factors that are an issue here. It's copyrighted material, and the entire material is being reproduced so we can't claim fair use on it. It's roughly the equivalent of reproducing a pirated song. Along with that the videos are hosted on an external service which is known to be fairly unreliable when it comes to copyrighted media, I honestly wouldn't doubt that some day all those video pages may become dead links, that is a considerable issue for a wiki that is supposed to be standalone and not require link maintenance.
