Moxie is 5 months old and just finished teething. We have been using this ear taping method ( http://misteldobermans.com/earwrapping.htm ) with backer rod, Johnson & Johnson coaches tape, and making a bridge between the top of her ears. Her ears are semi standing, but there are creases in both ears as you can see from these pictures. This is our first experience with taping and we are trying our best, please let us know what we should do differently from here on out with the ears. Thank you!

Just keep posting, and when you do, pull the outside edges of the ears as straight as possible.  My DJ has a weak spot on the outside edge of her left ear, and it wants to bend just like your photos show.  She's over a year old now, and I am still putting a Breathe Rite strip inside that ear to support it.  I'm almost thinking hers may never stand as straight as the right ear, though, but I havent stopped supporting it, just in case.
