    Good article from GigaLaw. I loved that part:

    "None of these new gTLDs is giving .com a run for its money in the domain name dispute arena. So far this year, 71.83% of all domain names in UDRP disputes include .com. In a distant second place is .net, with 5.45%. Domain names that include the .site gTLD account for 2.18% of UDRP disputes."

    "Go new gTLDs - GO"

    I can think of a number of reasons:
    • the .com TLD is considered the most 'strategic', therefore more prone to UDRPs
    • and it's by far the biggest extension with more than 120M domains
    • companies may not even bother about lesser extensions because they are deemed less of a threat
    • on the other hand the number of disputes involving new extensions is disproportionate in view of their modest registration numbers
    • The author said: "I suspect there will always be a correlation between the popularity of a top-level domain and the number of disputes that it attracts."
    Conclusion:
    "Go new gTLDs - GO"

    AWAY
