Unfortunately, the FCC seems unable to make use of the same digital
signature used by the rest of the federal government on PDFs so the
document you print isn't anything approaching a legal copy of your
license (and, in any case, the "license grant" is the DB record and
not the paper and it's been that way for at least a decade).  Be nice
if they could get their IT ... stuff together.  It's not hard - see,
for example: https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2016-07-07/pdf/2016-16047.pdf

And, speaking of the FCC not having their IT stuff together:
