this brings up a new question, since the home-user creates the 
counterfeit himself for his own private purpose.

Is one allowed to counterfeit a product,
to create a look-alike, for his own personal purposes (no distribution, 
no commercialism)?

For example create a look-alike Armani suite and to wear it yourself?
Or make a food-product at home that tastes exactly as a product of a 
certain brand.
