The French Society of Authors' Rights (SACD) following a request from Robert Bresson's widow, has forbidden Mouchette of the site http://mouchette.org to show one of her works related to the film called "Mouchette" created by Robert Bresson in 1967. The forbidden work is a quiz comparing both characters, the girl from the film and the girl from the website.
Here is the letter that forbids the film quiz: letter

The activities in support of mouchette.org will be announced at the following websites, where the URLs of the several copies will also be constantly updated:
