It does snap off. Use a pry tool to pry it off gently from the back side, under the battery... it can be fragile, though, so be very gentle.
That piece is one of the cheaper pieces in the phone, as it is manufactured en masse, and then stamped with the carrier logo.
(Someone in another thread asked why it was a separate piece... and that is basically the answer. It's cheap to manufacture a bunch of little ones, and then snap them in to the device as they roll down the line.)
FWIW, I'm trying to get a bunch from one of my RIM colleagues so I can "unbrand" my phone. I already did it with the Pearl, and it looks so much better without the skewed T-Mobile logo and the myFaves logo on the back.
