@oursin_360: Nah, it's still being produced by Sony and they'll still reap all the box office money and awards. From what I've read it's an agreement in-place between Sony and Disney where Spider-Man will be added to the Marvel Universe films and will be able to make guest appearance and appearance in future films and Marvel films. Not sure what kind of money agreement was put in place but having Spider-Man appear in continuity with the Marvel franchises is suppose to just be good business for both studios. In a perfect world Disney would love to have Spider-Man back, but he's such an iconic and popular superhero figure that there's no way Sony would give him up without a fight. The only reason why this can take place is because Disney and Sony executives have a good standing relationship with each other, compared to say Marvel and Fox where I just found out Marvel is rumored to be killing off the comic book marvel franchises owned by Fox (Fantastic Four and X-Men) in order to stop promoting them out of spite for them.
