The CEO of tech titan Oracle launched a blistering broadside at Google chief Larry Page on "Charlie Rose" Monday, alleging that the search giant copied Oracle code for its Android system.
Ellison singled out Page for "evil," though made clear he was addressing the CEO's actions.
"Larry...makes the decisions over there. He runs that company," he added.
Oracle and Google have been embroiled in a legal battle since 2010. Courts ruled in favor of Google last year, but both companies have since filed appeals.
Google wasn't the only company that took some heat from Ellison. The Oracle CEO suggested Apple was never going to be able to match the heights it achieved with Steve Jobs, calling the visionary "irreplaceable."
