What does exactly GPL license mean for my WordPress theme?

Question

To put it like this:

I have created a WordPress theme for myself which consists of the following:

  • PHP code – GPL v2 licensed like WordPress
  • CSS files – All rights reserved
  • JS files – All rights reserved
  • image files required for the theme – All rights reserved

As far as I understand I can copyright all non PHP files in the theme, so my question is:

  1. Does this licensing scheme (for file groups) violates the WordPress license?
  2. Do I have to publish the PHP code of the theme so it is available to everyone?
  3. If I were to make a WordPress powered website with my theme (with the same licenses as above) for someone else (who pays for the service), do I have to publish the PHP code of the theme so it is available to everyone, just the buyer, or anything else?
