I've been enjoying them since the official 6xDVD box set of the complete series was issued in 2004. No downloading necessary, just a wallet.

Does anyone know why the latest Spiderman films didn't have this fantastic theme tune?

Im assuming there was a copyright issue.

Not a copyright issue, but a creative decision, although Sam Raimi's three Spider-Man pictures did utilise Paul Francis Webster and Bob Harris' popular composition. In the first two films, it's performed fleetingly by characters playing buskers, whilst the original can be heard at the final moments of Spider-Man's end credits. Michael Buble recorded a new version, which can be heard during the credits of Spider-Man 2, whilst a few bars of the theme are present in Spider-Man 3. Aerosmith also recorded a version for the soundtrack of Spider-Man -- which was quite good, as was Buble's recording.

Here's a really good article with plenty of clips on the cool instrumental background music of the show:

And here's the podcast comparing the muddy sound of the instrumentals during the cartoon with the clear sounding, newly found masters of the same tracks:
