variables passed as parameters

Just a quick question,
when a list / gb_tree is passed as a parameter, is a full memcopy of the data
done to the new function?
The reason for my question: We would like to a have a data set passed on
through various modules, and each module may / may not update this data..
We are trying to figure out if it would be faster to create a single module
that manages the data in a "memory space" (like a gen_server state variable
or an ets table) or wether it would not really matter in terms of speed - and
the only factor to watch out for would be memory?
