Is Doc Savage actually owned by DC or merely licenced?

Isnt he Public Domain?

I think so cause there is a web page with free public domain comics and there is a huge collection of Doc Savage in there

but im pretty sure he is not owned by DC

That would be wonderful. Doc Savage could be used in all kinds of situations and stories in that case.

He's not owned by DC, but nor is he public domain yet. Dan Didio posted last month that DC had lost the license - if he was public domain, then there would be no license to lose.
