@Manish No GPL-licensed code executed on the client, no reason to license anything under GPL.

@Manish Did you or did you not take JavaScript code written and licensed under the GNU GPL by someone else, modify it and put it on your webserver for clients to download?

Yes, when you take HTML, CSS or JavaScript which is licensed under the GNU GPL, modify it, and put it on your website, you need to license it also under the GPL because they are sent to and executed on the visitors machine. But note that this does not apply when it is your own code which just interacts with a GPL-licensed backend, because that backend does not run on the users machine.

When you have more questions about using open source software in a commercial application, you might want to commit to the proposal Open Source Stackexchange.

This question could be handled much better on the new proposal Open Source Stackexchange which is still looking for people to commit to it so it can go into beta.
