There exists an Online Petition for Apple inc. to acknowledge this problem and solve it in some way.
I'm signer 268 and since mine there have been ten more signatures added.
The petition reads:
To: Apple Inc.
We, the undersigned, request that Apple Inc. officially acknowledge and address the defect in their LCD Displays. The defect causes vertical lines (cyan/yellow/pink) to appear cutting through the screen and multiplying as time goes by. Unfortunately, the problem starts to appear right after the end of the one year warranty. This problem has been filling up the Apple's online discussion forum and with no possible solution. We are the loyal Apple fans and would love to see Apple show its appreciation by stepping up to this issue.
