Is that given by any international treaties, or does it depend on local laws?

I'm not 100% sure (been on the mulled wine again), but I think even if
I don't distribute any of the bits, I need either a copyright licence
or to be covered by one of the blanket permissions in my local laws -
which are rather narrow.  I'm not confident that I would be covered if
I let remote users interact with it as above.

So I still think the AGPL3 is a bug.
