Tracking Images across the webz

I am interested in using Digimarc watermarks to track images across the web. Does anyone have an opinion on their MarcSpider tracking engine? Are there alternative techniques/technology?

For those who don't know. Digimarc sells digital watermarks for images. Most people purchase these to protect their copyright. At the highest subsription level (and through their ImageBridge commercial solution), Digimarc tracks the occurence of your images via a search engine/spider. This could be another tool to track where on the web my clients work is being discussed. Google will catch the text, sure.. but this is more targeted. Because watermarks require a reading process to detect the embedded data (=cpu time), and other factors, I have a feeling their search scope is severely limited.
Does anyone else offer a similar service?
