What's the difference between Converse and Chuck Taylors?

I've asked this to a bunch of people and no one seems to be sure. Is one just a style of shoe and the other a name? My dad thinks that Chucks have a wider color spectrum while Converse just come in basic blue, black, etc. What's a surefire way you can tell which is which?

    Converse Chuck Taylors can be any of the Converse that say Chuck Taylor on them-- the low tops and high tops, not the others. Ex: http://www.boston.com/ae/sidekick/blog/converse.jp...

    But Converse also makes other shoes, like basketball and skate shoes. These are not considered to be Chuck Taylors.

    Chuck Taylors are a style of Converse, not all Converse are Chuck Taylors. The impression I got is that CT s are more a more heavy duty shoe.

    Converse, I believe are higher shoe (like converse hightops)

    While convers chuck taylors are low-cut shoes (like vans)

    Both come in a wide range of different colours and styles, but honestly, I
