I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question, but I couldn't
find a better one.

I haven't quite understood that part in http://www.povray.org/povlegal.html,
so my question is: Am I allowed to render some scenes from that directory
and put those images on the Net (for educational purposes only -
Wikipedia)? Are those copyrighted or not (I'm not gonna give the source
code, only the result)?

Thanx for your help!

Of course they are copyrighted. The license is extremely clear, just read 
the first sentence of the paragraaph that follows: "This licence does not 
grant any right of re-distribution or use in any manner other than the above."
