Is the rear light above the license a legal must have?

I'm still waiting for someone to cut a rectangular hole in the bottom of their taillight and glue a piece of clear plastic over it. That might illuminate more than just the licence though. Would suck to have to have a blocker there to stop that dreaded illegal "rearward white light"

Not to speak for Sonny, but the tail light acts like a running light - it is always on dim - when you brake it goes to high. In this sense the license plate is always lit by the brake light/running light. If it is federal law - I expect it is more difficlut to interprete. In my case I seriously doubt I will leave the state of Minnesota w/ my bike. (But thanks for the invit BIO.)
If memory serves, I had a FZR 600 that I removed the license light on. I was never stopped for that.
If I get the energy after work, I'm going to take a closer look at the license plate situation - do some more measurements. See if my idea would work.
In California, I believe the requirement is for the license plate to be visible from behind by up to 150 feet. I don't know the requirements beyond that. But here is good advice- CONTACT YOUR POLICE DEPT (I did) OR YOUR DMV. They will know. @ the police department, most departments have cops on bikes. You might want to ask for one of them.
