Ego.  On both sides.

Disney: Toys aren't selling as hot.  We need more cash.
Sony: Spider-Verse did great!  We're gonna roll the dice.

Because some shortsighted twit made terrible licensing agreements.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

I'd be willing to bet that this is just a negotiating tactic between the 2 of them and eventually we'll get an announcement about how he's back in.

Personally I think Sony has a lot of leverage because it looked like the MCU was setting up Spidey to take the Iron Man role. Kind of the guy that everybody interacts with even when he isn't really part of the story. And he quickly became pretty much the favorite character in the MCU. It's really hard at this point for Disney to just ignore him.

Hopefully agreements like these won't be as often as we have cable channel disputes (e.g.: AT&T dropping CBS channels, etc.) although Disney and Sony are in a unique spot.

Also Marvel's fault for making a character so important in their films when they really didn't own the rights and it could have gone south at any time.
Which it just did.

So now both sides problems - the MCU has to totally ignore Spidey and all they set up for him and SONY cant follow up plots or use anything from the MCU.
