Should copyright owners have to "opt out" or "opt in" for Google online search?

I voted Opt-In.  If you fail to Opt-Out you will automatically be included in Google’s collection of ‘public domain’ books.

A federal judge in Manhattan rejected Google’s settlement with authors and publishers that would allow it to make millions of books available online, saying it would give the Internet giant the ability to “exploit” books without the permission of copyright owners. The solution, he suggested, is simple: rather than let copyright owners of books “opt out” of the settlement, which was reached in 2008 between Google, the Authors Guild and the Association of American Publishers, copyright owners should be given the choice to “opt in.” Which do you think is more fair to copyright holders?
