Fictitious business names online?

Asked over 5 years ago - Colton, CA

With so many daily and weekly newspapers going out of business, how are legal advertisements published? Fictitious business names, foreclosures, divorces ect.
I know all legal ads need published in a newspaper that is adjudicated for the County where the newspaper is located. Are the laws changing? Can I publish my legal ads online now and will it be legal? If so who’s doing this?

    I am not aware of any changes allowing publication of legal notices in Internet bulletin boards or other online media. However, many of the legal newpapers may the materials available in print as well as online.
