David Oxenford in the Broadcast Law blog reports that the Federal Communications Commission may soon require all radio, cable, and satellite broadcasters to keep their public files online. Currently, all broadcasters must keep a file available for public inspection of documents related to the broadcaster's license and responsibilities as a user of the public airwaves.
