Do you mean quality or originality?  Are you saying that if I write a
highly original stream of conciousness novel that is judged by the critics
to be of abysmal literary quality that I will be denied a copyright in
Norway?  Is buggy spaghetti code not protected in Germany?

That's the problem.  How does the law judge the quality of works of
authorship?  Do the courts employ panels of literary critics?
