Dwayne McDuffie -- co owner of Milestone Media and a story editor/writer/producer of Justice League Unlimited -- stopped by to say hi and:
How weird! I just followed a link from a post you left on TV Barn, and the first thing I see is my name at the top of the page! Just wanted to clarify, Milestone's assets are all owned by Milestone. DC Comics has a sweetheart licensing deal that keeps us from doing a lot of stuff we want to with the characters but they don't own anything of Milestone's. They don't even have a stake in the company.There you go. Dwayne still runs Milestone. DC just licenses.
With that, I link to an interview of him at Silver Bullet Comics.
