Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

If I download the OpenStreetMaps data files and shape files, then use Mapnik to render the tiles on my own server, who owns the copyright on the rendered tiles? Am I required to share the tiles I render and distribute them under CreativeCommons or can I decide to sell them in parts for profit and disallow redistribution?

where you got the rendering style from? Its license may restrict you.

The ODbL license allows you to put a non-database derived work (called a "produced work" in ODbL parlance) under a different license than ODbL or disallow redistribution altogether, provided that you make the source data available or point people to where they can get it, and keep attribution in place. See the legal FAQ.
