How can I remove faux / false etching on glass doors?

I recently had a three panel sliding door installed in our offices, and unbeknown to me before ordering it, there are two patterns of four interlocking circles on each panel, which is making me feel like I'm in a Audi dealership. (theres an image here
Obviously it's a safety feature, but i'd like to remove it. I scratched at it a bit with a blade and it started to come off, so I assumed it wasn't true etching, but after the first layer of what I assumed to be paint came off, i couldn't get off what was underneath. I tried all manner of adhesive removers short of acetone, but nothing worked, and now it looks worse than with the circles on.
