My privacy… has a price

I registered a domain name yesterday on Yahoo! and just when I was ready to confirm, I saw this:

My privacy

I find it odd that I should pay to keep my private data, you know… private! Am I misreading the above? or does it sound more like extortion then a valued service? Oh, please note, this is an annual fee, I wonder how long one will have to pay to keep their private data private?

This whole thing just rubs me the wrong way!
