Bryan: Yep, I knew that. Look at the credits, and you'll notice the character is listed as "Man in Wheelchair" or something similar. They used the character without using his name, technically staying within the court's rulings.

This had to be a deliberate shot at McClory owning Blofeld--not just a way to tie up the loose end, because in Blofeld's last appearance, in Diamonds are Forever, Bond kills him.

Now, had EON retained the rights to Blofeld, they no doubt would have had Blofeld either survive the exploding oil platform, escape, or reveal that it was another double that was killed (which would have made three that movie, I think).
