Unhappy "Oil film"-look on screen

My screen suddenly got a 2x4 cm oil film'ish rectangle in the middle of the screen!
Tried removing the screen protector, which went of really easy btw, and it's still there... Is this the same symptom as when the inner and outer layer of the screen has loosened?
Really don't want to send my phone in for service, but seems like I have too, if no one got a good solution for me?

There is a post exactly like this in the forum. I have the same problem but doesn't affect the functionality of the phone so far. I called HTC while my phone is still under warranty, but they don't give a rat ass about their product. Search for the threat and read what other members said about it. You are not the only one with this problem, thousands of other as well but HTC is not taking any responsibility. Your choice is replace the screen which doesn't cost that much nor difficult from what I read.

Hmm, I'll try to take it through the store, or since it's my corporate phone maybe they'll take it in...
It's a shame if HTC don't take any responsibility about this

The only people I've seen had this problem is people who use screen protectors, but then again I've never really read all that much about it.
