DAVOS: Microsoft Corp founder Bill Gates today said beating software piracy in India and getting compliance up to U.S. and European levels would take 10 years.

"In India it will be a decade before we get that level," Gates told business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

"But as long as there is year-by-year progress, it holds a great opportunity for us in terms of scale, which helps us do more, and it's a great place where we have people working for us." Gates said sales of the company's software in India was increasing every year and he was optimistic that India would come round to licensing as Taiwan and South Korea had done.
