A private website that publishes the Constitution of Pakistan carries the following copyright disclaimer

My question is, does HTML formatting meet the The threshold of originality? Or is this just text likely just a deterrent?


Unless there is something special in Pakistani case law on this topic, it would pass the originality requirement. In my opinion, it is actually very well laid out, and it is clearly not just slapping a few tags on plain text. This article does not indicate any particularly high standards for originality in Pakistan.
