"interacting with the software through the network" an HTTP request is an 
interaction with the software. You send input through the network the software 
process it and transmit a reply trough the network. The license provide no 
semantic on the usefulness of the interaction.

But imagine i'm wrong, let's say it's bullshit and the login page does not 
imply a "real" interaction. Even then every employee of the company is 
entitled to ask for it and publish it, even when they are fired.
